Stephen Colbert ridicules Trump’s desperate attempts to avoid trial




Stephen Colbert talks about Trump's stall tactics.

With his criminal trial less than a week away, Stephen Colbert mocked Trump’s efforts to delay the case.

Colbert said:

Trump’s lawyers argued that the former president would not receive a fair trial because the jury pool has been tainted by reporting on Trump’s other recent cases. So you’re saying that members of the jury couldn’t have seen any news about Donald Trump’s crimes? His crimes are the news!

I do not understand. Who would leave that behind? “Your Honor, it is only fair that our client be judged by an impartial jury that knows nothing of the events in America over the past nine years. Could I recommend twelve confused men who were dropped off as babies in a forest and then raised by wolves, or if they are not available we could purchase some clone babies who were quickly aged in some sort of machine and then released into the jury box? Oh? Oh, they think he’s guilty too? Okay.”

Trump’s request to change locations wasn’t the only desperate stunt he pulled. He also tried to sue the judge. Yes, it’s bizarro court! The suspect is suing the judge! The Bible swears on the bailiff! The hammer hits everyone! I believe this is one of Stormy’s movies. The hammer hits everyone! The lawsuit challenges the gag order that Judge Merchan imposed on Trump to prevent him from verbally attacking witnesses, jurors and others, including, importantly, the judge’s daughter, whom Trump has attacked on social media. Trump has also called on Judge Merchan to recuse himself, citing bias. Yes, the judge should recuse himself because Trump attacked the judge’s family.


The argument from Trump’s lawyers is basically that the ex-president committed too many crimes in Manhattan to get a fair trial. That’s why Trump should move his trial to a place less familiar with his history of criminal activity.

Stephen Colbert was right. Trump is desperate. The failed former president didn’t really believe he would ever stand trial, and why should he?

Trump is someone who has gotten away with everything for his entire left and has never been held accountable, so it must be shocking for him to have to face the consequences of his actions.

Defendant Trump will only become more desperate as the accountability comes and he seems powerless to stop it.
